A streamer’s live broadcast was shut down by Twitch after he was streaming gameplay of the upcoming Fallout 76 game.

Streamer ‘Time2Purge’ was stress testing the newest title in the popular Fallout series when his Twitch channel was struck down due to infringing upon the game’s content embargo.


Although Fallout 76 is due to release on November 14, a pre-order beta offers players to get early access to a preliminary version of the game and try it out. 

However, according to the FAQ page for the beta, players can share game-related content starting from the day the beta releases, which is October 23 on Xbox One and October 30 on Playstation 4 and PC.


According to Time2Purge, the stream was shut down because one of the viewers had reported him and his channel to Twitch.

“Due to powers beyond my command, and some dickwad reporting me, I’ve just been told I’m being shut down,” the streamer said. “Thanks for watching everyone! And to that dickwad: go suck a dick! You just ruined it for everyone.”

Interestingly enough, it seems as though the stream would not have been shut down if it wasn’t for one of the viewers reporting it to Twitch.


Prior to that, the broadcast had been live for nearly 40 minutes, during which a variety of gameplay and in-game content was shown. 

For the time being, the entirety of the rebroadcast is still available on Twitch, and can be viewed below:

AS VAL and SP-R 208 nerfs coming to Warzone & Modern Warfare

Infinity Ward have confirmed that they are in the process of releasing a patch that will nerf Season 6’s AS VAL and SP-R 208 weapons, which have been causing major issues for players on both Modern Warfare multiplayer and Warzone.

Call of Duty fans are always eager for new weapons to be added to Warzone with the release of a new season, helping keep the ultra-popular battle royale mode fresh and exciting for those who regularly jump into Verdansk in search of victories.


Adding new weapons isn’t always easy though, as making sure they are balanced and fair can prove to be tricky. You don’t know how they will truly perform until they are in the hands of the massive Call of Duty player base, and often need to be adjusted afterward to bring them in line with the other guns.

Season 6’s new weapons have proved to particularly problematic though, with the SP-R 208’s speed, power and accuracy as a sniper rifle allowing anyone to become a one-shot killing machine. While the AS VAL has been shooting through unlimited surfaces, thanks to then 10 round mag attachment that sees it slam through six walls with ease on maps like St. Petrograd.


Unsurprisingly, Warzone and Modern Warfare fans aren’t particularly happy about the new weapons, which can make it impossible to avoid death while taking cover or make you an easy target for snipers.

Thankfully, Infinity Ward have been listening to the complaints, and a fix is on the way to get these problems ironed out for what is likely to be the final Modern Warfare in-game season.

In a tweet sent out by Infinity Ward‘s Senior Communications Manager Ashton Williams, not only are the developers intent on balancing the weapons, but they have already created the updates required and are testing them ahead of release.


“We currently have a patch being tested that has weapon tuning for the AS VAL and SP-R 208,” it reads. “Pending any unforeseen issues, we’ll release it as soon as possible.”

While the fix is on the way, Williams didn’t go as far as giving a confirmed release date for the patch. These things can often be delayed due to other bugs cropping up as a result of the fix, so Infinity Ward will want to make sure that nothing else breaks because of it during thier testing phase.

At least a fix is on the way though, and soon you’ll be able to take cover behind walls safe in the knowledge that you aren’t about to get destroyed by someone with AS VAL aimed right where you’re hiding.
